This weekend turned out to be a downward spiraling mess. If you saw my Instagram stories yesterday, then you know that I have 7 campaigns to shoot THIS weekend. We couldn't shoot in the house yesterday like I had planned because it was snowing and there was absolutely no natural light (meaning that it was too dark to get quality photos). Due to bad lighting, we tried to change the game plan and head to a local Christmas Tree nursery. The first place we went to was the furthest thing from a Christmas tree lot. It was more like a big dirt pile with planted fruit trees without leaves. Once we determined that it was not going to work to shoot there, our choices were to either turn around and go back home and say forget it or try to get to another place. The next spot that we knew about was another 30 minutes away. We had already been in the car for 20 minutes and my gut told me that it was going to be too far for Winter and that she would get carsick. But, I also knew that the deadlines were piling up and that we had to at least try to knock some stuff off our list.
So remember when I said I shot a pair of overalls and then left sans overalls in the bathroom of a coffee shop? WELL, these are that pair. Thank god the owner and his girlfriend at Luna Rose General Stores in Denver are saints and saved them for me! I was freaking out. Like who leaves overalls at a coffee shop? Apparently, I do!
So the blog platform that I operate on won't let me do too many round ups in one post (big sigh!). So I had to break them up. On this post, you will find discount codes and my round ups for each store. Don't forget about the wish list post that I did for Mom, Dad, Toddler and the home, HERE!
You guys!! This post probably took me 15 hours to put together. I hunted for the best deals and was really choosy about the products that I put on these lists. Below you will find a shopping guide for Winter, our home, myself and Perry. Just click on a photo to shop!!
I promise you that you won't be disappointed with these picks! I WANT IT ALL!
Eek! I know I may be jumping the gun a little on talking about the holidays, but last year I waited too long, and all the good stuff was sold out. So this year, I got a head start, scored the internet to bring you the best Christmas sweaters out there. *To shop, just click on a photo below. You can also hover your mouse to see where the item came from and the price.
Last month, I decided to give Nordstrom's Trunk Club a shot (you can read my initial review, here). Trunk Club is a personalized styling service that sends you clothes right to your doorstep.
I liked it so much that I continued the service and just received my second trunk. My stylist, Jennifer, is excilent and I feel like she nails my style! I asked her to include a few pairs of jeans and fun and cozy sweaters. I am so ready for cooler temperatures and all the snow!
I love the smell of the crisp autumn air, the leaves changing and blowing in the wind, and last but not least, all the fall dresses. This dress is from Vida Moulin, a boutique from my hometime, Phoenix. I wore it this past weekend to a wedding, and it made for the BEST dancing dress. Perry and I had a blast dancing, and I loved how the light weight of this dress made it easy for me to twirl around and salsa dance.
So if your an influencer, you'll want to know about this app called Popular Pays, which is a platform that connects brands with stories to tell and the content creators who'll help them say it (like me!). It's where I get the majority of paying collaborations. And if you're not an influencer, just disregard this first paragraph :)
Well, the other day, I had the opportunity to shoot with Marshalls. It was one of those "pinch me" moments. When they accepted my entry for the campaign, I about fell out of my seat. The either picked you to feature home decor or fashion for the gig and they decided that I was to focus on style. They sent me a long list of this year's top fashion trends + styling tips, and I thought that they were so good, that I wanted to share it with you all.
So, I recently signed up for my first Trunk Club with Nordstroms. If you don't know what it is, you really should!! Basically, it's a personalized styling service that sends you clothes right to your doorstep. When you sign up, you take a style survey, add in your sizes to your profile and from there, you are linked to a stylist.
My stylist's name is Jennifer---and you guys, she nailed the first trunk!!
Eek! I am getting so excited about Halloween that I can hardly stand it. I feel like this is the first round of holidays that Winter can take an active part in and I plan to make each holiday as festive as possible for her.
Below is a roundup that I did on how to decorate your home to be spooky and festive, while still being able to let your bohemian vibes shine through.
